Southeastern Grocers Gives $750K To Folds Of Honor

Southeastern Grocers Folds of Honor

A $750,000 donation from Jacksonville, Florida-based Southeastern Grocers Inc. to Folds of Honor will provide 150 educational scholarships to the children and spouses of fallen and disabled military members.

SEG’s donation was made possible by customer and employee donations raised during a four-week program.

Anthony Hucker, president and CEO of Southeastern Grocers, said in a statement that the company was “immensely grateful for the dedication and generosity our customers and associates have shown” for the cause.

“It is inspiring to witness our communities joining together to create meaningful change – especially during these challenging economic times,” he said. “Together, we have made a lasting difference in the lives of our heroes who have sacrificed so much for our everyday freedoms.”

Since 2018, Southeastern Grocers has donated more than $7.5 million to Folds of Honor with the help of its charitable arm, SEG Gives Foundation. The funds raised have provided more than 1,500 educational scholarships.

Last year during its annual campaign, Southeastern Grocers donated $1.25 million to Folds of Honor.

“We can’t thank Southeastern Grocers and its communities enough for their continued support of our program,” said Dan Rooney, CEO and founder of Folds of Honor.

“The unwavering patriotism we’ve seen over the course of our six-year partnership has made a profound impact on our mission and in the lives of our brave military families. It’s because of great American companies like Southeastern Grocers that we are able to provide educational opportunities to more and more deserving families each year.”

Scholarships awarded through Folds of Honor provide private education tuition and tutoring for children in kindergarten through 12th grade, as well as tuition for college, technical or trade school and post-graduate work, including a master’s, doctoral or professional program. 

Folds of Honor has provided more than 44,000 educational scholarships for children, spouses and dependents of fallen and disabled military service members since its inception in 2007, and recently expanded its program to support first responder families.
